DNS server to answer queries from the hosts file.
Posted on 2006-04-26
I have a DNS sever.
I have some internally used URLs that look like part of a public name space but in fact are not.
i.e. eggster.microsoft.com should resolve to 192.168.1.1 and so on.
if I put this info on a hosts file like:
on a pc and ping eggster.microsoft.com , it pings 192.168.1.1
however, how can I get the DNS server to answer queries with this information? i.e. when somebody asks the DNS server the address for eggster.microsoft.com , it should first check the hosts file before checking its own database and answer the query with this local ip.
is this at all possible within windows 2000 or 2003?
